  1. Great let us know when it's ready thanks
  2. Any idea when this new version will be available? Thanks
  3. What was your best lap time for the Anglesey Coastal layout?
  4. Had an issue with the BC Coilovers knocking going over bumps on the offside rear, took it off and re-assemble the strut, which cured it, hopefully it would be useful for anyone who had the same problem with noisy coilovers.
  5. Don't care much for stonechips it's inevitable if you drive it, but trolley dents really does my head in as that is caused by other people lack of care
  6. Had the car fully paint corrected and ceramic coated a couple of weeks ago, was much needed as the paint was dull af.
  7. Front was fine the rear was rubbing over bumps before I had the arches rolled

    Spring rates

    I've got 8/6kg spring rates on my BC coilovers set at 10 from soft at the front and 8 from soft for daily driving, they ride great!
  9. Great day at Anglesey yesterday, would love a track prep E92 M3 now, they are on another level.
  10. Alright guys read a few threads re people suffering from clunking/metallic rattling noise coming from the rear after installing coilovers, the problem is on the rear coilovers doesn't come with a strut gasket therefore metal on metal creating rattling noise when over bumps, my friend help me to fix it tonight by sticking a piece of dynamat on top of the strut and please to say it works and no more rattling noise now. You can get a piece of dynamat for a few quid on eBay, cut a square piece roughly the size of the strut top, cut a cross in the middle, use the sticky side onto actual strut, then cut around the shape of the strut cover, re-install and enjoy the peace and quiet over bumps.
  11. Can you cut these down to size? Mines are too long currently and thinking of taking a dremel to it
  12. Was just looking through my inbox seeing what parts I've replaced/upgraded over the years, and just couldn't believe how all the traders on here help so much. Unlike many others who only seem to take money off you, every single trader I've spoken to on here was ready to give advice and gone beyond the normal customer service, when I first bought my 350Z I was disappointed to find one of the rear lens had a crack on it after I got it home, R35LEE offered to send me one FOS, what a great gesture that was, also Mitz who upgraded my postage to FedEx fos for the Cobra exhaust as I couldn't wait to replace the loud droney broken OEM exhaust, Zmanalex and Clark Performance for all other advices re the running and servicing, Abbey Motorsport for their advice on alignment settings. Good to know there's a good bunch on here to help us looking after our pride and joys. Keep up the good works guys
  13. Yeah it was fine after a couple of hundred miles, the super low bite point and stiff gearchange gone, it's like butter now.
  14. I'm running a close to square set up on 10x18 and 11x18, 255/35/18 and 265/35/18 Nangkang NS2R, no problem with TC I've found.
  15. and I got the keyring to match now, shame it's not black
  16. Picked up another bargain, a set of Whiteline anti roll bars came up for sale near me for a bargain price of £150, the car rides well and handles well now, couldn't be more happier, there's a few more things I'd like to do down the line which includes a Kazz LSD and 3.9FD, but for now I think it's finished, bar the Nismo front splitter I have in the box still to be fitted, but I may sell it and get the mines lips instead, but for now it has got to more or less how I wanted it.
  17. Suspension time! After having coilovers on previous cars which was far too hard for our roads here I gone for a set of BC BR Coilovers with 8/6kg spring rate rather than the usual 10/8kg, as last thing I want is bouncy ride which totally ruins the car, as I figure I want the car to ride well and if I were to control the roll I would just upgrade the anti roll bars anyway. So a trip to Area Motorsport to install the coilovers, driftworks camber arms, SPC toe bolts and SPL lockout kit together with setting the alignment and rolling the rear arches. The car rides unbelievably well, just feels like a well set up car to live with compare to hard crashy rides associated with modded cars, would highly recommend 8/6kg spring rates for anyone looking to upgrade their suspensions!
  18. Clutch was beginning to slip at 90k miles so a quick order from Clarke Motorsport got myself sorted out with a Xtreme Orgainc clutch and lighten flywheel, also been waiting for some new wheels and decided on some Rota MXR in 10x18 et7 and 11x18 et12, got lucky with them as I saw a pair of 10x18 2nd hand for sale quite locally and then a month later a pair of 11x18 pop up nearby! Result! Got them refurb and powdered coated in Satin Bronze which goes well with the black paintwork. New wheels meant new tyres, I wanted a square set up, but at the same time I don't want to upset the VDC as I leave that on for cold rainy days on the motorway so I settle on 255/35/18 and 265/35/18s, this was going to be a gamble as I can't find anything concrete on whether that size runs well with the VDC, but happily it pays off as the car runs fine with those tyre size. I wanted tyres that are more focus and didn't want soft sidewalls and don't turn to mush after a few laps, so that rule out the popular MPSS, originally wanted to get the Yokohama AD08R but looking further into it there's some rave reviews on Nangkang NS2R, the yokos cost nearly twice as much and I don't think I'm chasing every last second so I thought I'd try them out! Seems great to me at the price and wraps around the wheels perfectly, just a little bit of stretch but not too much and fill those arches well once lowered! But looked like a lifted zed with the OEM suspension.
  19. Took the car to Anglesey Circuit, car was completely stock bar the brakes pads was upgraded to DS2500 pads and Motul 660 brake fluids, the body roll and boring understeer was horrendous! Near the end of the day the OEM back box decided to give up, so started looking for a new cat back system, want somethig that sounds like stock, as the standard exhaust notes was so good, didn't want anything that make it sound like a 4 banger which I thought some did, so after a bit of research (YouTube) a Cobra resonated cat back was ordered, perfect sounded just like OEM but turn up a few notches without being obnoxiously loud.
  20. Had the car since 2014 been meaning to do a build thread for a while, at the time when I was looking for a new car I was looking for something with a nice sounding engine, rear wheel drive and got to look good! And the 350z fit the bill perfectly, S2000 was another option but for some reason I never really got on with Vtec, guess I'm lazy and like torque too much! Anyway first thing I did as with most was to get a shorten Honda aerial, then I had the Rays painted Satin Black, not a choice of finish I would do as the paint would easily chip, powder coating was much better.
  21. What setting did you originally have the Arb mate?
  22. Softening the rear damper did help, more neutral to oversteer now when entry and steeping on mid corner, although I still the front tyres rollover feeling, will increase the front tyre pressure and see what it's like next
  23. I will be taking the same bend tonight, picking my gf up from work, little bit warmer tonight and I've soften the rear, will see what's it like
  24. Hi guys had my whiteline arb installed yesterday, front soft and rear medium, like it at initial test drive but last night when going through a left handed corner something strange came up, as I turn to a tight left I can feel the front tyres rolling over for a split second then the back end step out, felt really strange instead of a progressive oversteer I'd like, I've soften the rear damping a little bit and see whether that'll improve things, the road was a little bit greasy tho ambient temp was 3c, but the roll over of the front tyres then snap oversteer does seems very strange! Any of you had whiteline Arb before and how you find them? Read someone who said it made their 350z handle like a old school 911 which I can see where they were coming from haha
  25. Try posting on 350z uk Facebook group to get more interest too
